Jaguar Land Rover has globally unveiled the 2021 I-Pace electric-SUV. The all-electric SUV features a host of upgrades over the pervious-generation model. This includes a new infotainment system, three-phase AC home charging and updated driver-focused technology.
The Jaguar I-Pace is expected to come to the Indian market sometime this year. It will be placed higher up in the price bracket as a luxury electric-SUV as compared to the current crop of EV currently available in the Indian market.
Speaking about the changes on the 2021 I-Pace, it will come equipped with a 11kW onboard charger as standard, replacing the lower-spec 7kW from the earlier models. The updated charging solution will also enable owners to charge their SUVs via a three-phase electric supply to enjoy faster charging.
According to the figures from (WLTP) Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure, charing the I-Pace with the 11kW charger will provide a range of 53km for an hour of charging time. A full charge from the same charger will take up to 8.6 hours.
In comparison, the 7kW single-phase charging only provided 35km of range from an hour of charge, and took up to 13 hours to reach from 0 to 100 per cent charge. Charging the SUV for 15-minutes via a 50kW will provide 63km of driving range, while using a 100kW charger add 127km over the same period.
The new Jaguar I-Pace also features an updated infotainment system. It is the first vehicle from the brand to feature the new Pivi Pro infotainment system. It features a 12.3-inch display for the instrument cluster, and 10-inch and 5-inch upper and lower touchscreens, for infotainment and various other control of the electric-SUV.
The company claims that the new technology is as intuitive to use as a smartphone. The Pivi Pro infotainment system is fast and responsive with enhanced EV navigation that can show if nearby charging stations. It also provides data regarding the status of the charging station such as: in use, the cost, and the time taken to charge.
Stephen Boulter, Vehicle Engineering Manager, Jaguar I-PACE, said: "The Pivi Pro infotainment system makes it easy to use public charging networks. As well as showing where charging stations are it can also tell you if they're available, what they cost to use, and an estimate of charging time. We know that most customers charge their I-PACE at home but we wanted to make charging on the go just as simple - and our new infotainment system makes that possible."
The 2021 I-Pace also features subtle design revisions over the previous model. This includes a new Atlas Grey grille tip finish, new alloy wheel design, and a luxurious new Bright Pack option, and a host of new colour options. On the Inside, the electric-SUV features in-cabin air ionisation with the help of a PM2.5 filtration to capture ultrafine airborne particles and allergens.
The new I-Pace also features a new 3D Surround Camera that provides a 360-degree digital plan view of the surrounding area that is relayed on to the central touchscreen. This will help users to either check or be aware of potential hazards at all times.
The Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV features two permanent magnet electric motors mounted on each axle. The eclectic motors are coupled to a 90kWh Lithium-ion battery pack. The electric powertrain produces a combined power output of 395bhp and 696Nm of torque. The electric SUV can sprint from 0 to 100kmph in 4.8 seconds, and reach a top speed of 200kmph. The 2021 I-Pace features a total driving range of up to 470km.
